Healthy Happenings

BE SAFE! As we approach the holidays, it is more important than ever to wear a mask in public places, avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet apart from anyone not in your household, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, avoid contact with anyone sick, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, avoid indoor social gatherings, and GET A FLU SHOT! If you plan on traveling to another location to celebrate the holidays, check the community’s number and rate of COVID cases first at Learn more about virus spread risk and holiday celebrations at
